NEW YORK FARM BUREAU FOUNDATION ADDS TO THE “MEET YOUR FARMER” VIDEO SERIES
The New York Farm Bureau Foundation promised to add more farmers to this ongoing project, and now you can view the results of that promise. We are excited to announce two new additions that will bring consumers closer to the farmers who produce their food through this video series entitled, “Meet Your Farmer” that the public can view online through the Foundation’s YouTube and social media pages, and the Foundation’s website at nyfbfoundation.org. The website has been updated to be smartphone friendly for people looking to view the series on a mobile device or tablet.
The videos feature New York farm families talking about their farms and their passion for growing food and caring for their land and animals. This project fits into the Foundation’s mission of sowing the seeds of understanding to educate the public about modern-day agriculture.
The two new additions include, The Campbell Family of Mapleland Farm in Salem, NY, and the Foster Sheep Farm in Schuylerville, NY. The farms in our first releases of the series included McCormick Farms in Bliss, NY; CY Farms in Elba, NY; and Orbaker’s Fruit Farm in Williamson, NY.
Be sure to check them out and meet some more of your New York Farmer neighbors! The Foundation hopes to continue this series with a variety of agricultural sectors, as well as diverse NYS locations.
